Every corner and particle of this flat piece of paper has been seen and touched. This drawing represents an enormous effort that is seeing and believing. As in yesterday's blog post, I ask you to look back at the previous post. I am in a back-and-forth world. Does this work? Or does that work better? I am unsure. I go back and forth, examine this, then that. This process is, hopefully, a problem solving loop; I am looping around a center, moving toward mastery.
I very much like this drawing. I very much liked the last drawing I made on 10/15/2021. They are very different. This one contains two strong, complex forms; these forms are against a blank background, except for a simple line to delineate a horizon. The one from 10/15 I called an "all-over" drawing. This one spares marks from the white background. These drawings illustrate a method. I see myself go back and forth, not by design, but by challenge and need. Both drawings are conscious of the entire rectangle they sit within; but, they handle the flat piece of paper in very different ways.
